Vaccine Drive Tomorrow At 6:30


Laredo, TX - -The City of Laredo Health Department will hold its regularly scheduled rabies clinic. Recently our animal control officers have seen a surge of unvaccinated pets and urge the public to get their pets vaccinated. Additionally, we have confirmed several bats with rabies. We want to remind the public that it is their responsibility to safeguard the health and welfare of their pets not only against rabies vaccine but to also protect them against other illnesses as well as against fleas and ticks.

In Laredo we must vaccinate each year to protect your pet and family against rabies. Rabies can spread quickly and easily among dogs and cats; our concern is the potential human exposure, which can be deadly. We would like to remind the public of some precautions for handling bats.
